About Turks and caicos islands

The Turks and Caicos Islands are a British Overseas Territory located in the Atlantic Ocean. The territory is comprised of two groups of tropical islands: the larger Caicos Islands and the smaller Turks Islands. Covering a total land area of 616 square kilometers, the Turks and Caicos Islands are known for their pleasant climate, beautiful beaches, and abundant marine life. The islands' population is estimated at around 37,000. The capital, Cockburn Town, is situated on Grand Turk Island. English is the official language and the population is predominantly of African descent. The islands' culture is heavily influenced by African, American, and British elements. Despite its small size, the economy of the Turks and Caicos Islands is relatively prosperous, largely based on tourism, fishing, and offshore banking. The Turks and Caicos Islands enjoy a high standard of living with one of the highest per capita incomes in the Caribbean. The islands have been a British Territory since 1962 and the Queen of England is the head of state, represented locally by a Governor. The islands are known for their biodiversity with many species of plants and wildlife. They are home to one of the longest coral reefs in the world, making it a popular diving destination.
